I just want to a show of hand of those members who drive their car, whether it be daily, weekends or race track only. Or even those who have one but never drive it. In this day and age it seems like there not many on the road, well not as much as we'd like. So if you can post a timeline on how long you've had her for and her duties, how often its used and perhaps the kind kilometer you put on your car.

Keep the 86 dream alive...OR are you living the 86 curse, where it spends more time off road fixing it than on road driving it

im kinda living the curse, but hoping to break it when shes on the road again. I'm having heaps of faith. i've driven twice to melbourne and once to gold coast in an ae86 and they are realiable till you thrash it and mod it.
